I grew up watching Mr. Roger’s neighborhood and have such fond memories of his show. Recently, there have been some amazing documentaries that have come out about Mr. Rogers, there is also another movie which will star Tom Hanks that is in the works right now.

I thought it would be fun to do a unit study and learn about the life of Fred Rogers and his famous show Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood. If your children haven’t seen Mr. Rogers then they are in for a real treat! They will love his gentle spirit, and encouraging words, his puppets are pretty amazing too!

There was just something about him, that really did make you feel special when you were watching his show. My favorite memories of Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood is when he showed a mom breastfeeding her infant, and when he took everyone on a field trip to the Crayola factory. That was just the coolest thing to watch crayons being made!
